Nice choice, Mr.Smith. I was also perusing the many options for this day and was unsure as where to start. Well, now I know and it's off I go.

Hope your New Year finds you well and content. As usual, the perfunctory glass of Laphroaig will be tipped to the East this night.

Thank you, Mr Hollow. For myself it will be either The Glenlivet or Dalwhinnie - I may even be so bold as to sample both. Health and happiness to you and to yours in the coming year.

Hoist that glass of mineral water (or whatever horrors you're restricted to these days) high come midnight and give yourself a toast. You did damned well in 2008 and here's to better things ahead in 2009. Health, happiness and all good things to you and yours.



But you're still an asshole (it takes one to know one).

I'll have to sip The McCallen, if no one here is offended. Not much, though, I'm finishing the bathroom renovation this weekend!

Nice call on the Leap Frog. I can't help but instantly take a liking to a fan of the Islay peat monsters.

I'm deciding between a bottle of Highland Park 18, 1996 Double Matured Lagavulin or cracking my 83 Signatory Port Ellen.

I also have a bottle of Gordon and McPhail 1954 Linkwood - bottled in 1997. I call it my cougar malt - 43 years old, smooth, complex and it will take you on a ride you will never forget and you will never go back to anything under the age of 25. Whoops, I thought we were talking whisky, sorry.

Direwolf - trust me, Diet Pepsi is much better than what we are talking about. In all seriousness, best to you in the upcoming year. One day at a time my friend, and we all get there together.

I prefer the Laguvulin to the Laphroig but that's me. Sounds as if you have a very difficult decision. Perhaps I can help you. How about if I come over and act as a taster to assure that you pick the right dram to celebrate the new year. Of course it may take me more than one glass to make the correct decision......

How soon can you be here?

I was stationed in Scotland for 3 1/2 years from 84-88 and at one point had about 170 different malts in my closet. Some were gems, some were worse than leftover haggis squeezings. Loch Dhu (Loch Doo doo) was one of my favorite horrible whiskys.

Still have a pretty good selection of stuff left. Lots of Springbanks, a nice 61 Mortlach (birth year), Longrow, Glen Rothes, Dailuane, Rosebank, Balvenie Traditional, Brora, Aberlour a'bunadh (Batch #6), a few Bowmores, 68 Tomatin, Caol Ila, Ben Rinnes, Port Ellen, Dallas Dhu, Glenfarclas, 1874 Replica Macallan, Glen Morangie (Sherrywood and Port wood), Highland Park and of course, the peat monsters - Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Laphroaig.

Tossing back malt whisky while streaming the Dead circa '71????

It doesn't get any better than that unless it involves twin redheads, a 12 x 12 tarp and a couple of quarts of massage oil.

Wait, that was back in 82.................

Single malts have long been my weakspot, but today brings back fond memories of last year when my father in law opened up a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue. Good god.
